VitaeMobility, ABB to Deploy a Network of 50 DC Fast Chargers throughout Belgium
VitaeMobility, specialists in e-mobility for business and government fleets and consumers, and ABB announced a partnership to install and manage 50 Terra Smart Connect (SC) DC fast chargers at multiple locations throughout Belgium.
The company specifically chose ABB's Terra Smart Connect (SC) as it is the only smart connected charging station on the market that supports EV charging for company fleets in 30-120 minutes. The first installations for the nationwide network will be in place by the end of July.
ABB will carry out the installations of the chargers and will deliver network operating support services (NOC) and the backbone IT architecture which provides each web-connected charger with a full range of connectivity features, including remote assistance, management and servicing and smart software upgradeability. Maintenance and repair services will be taken care of by ABB's local support team in Belgium.
Installing DC fast chargers is a necessary next step towards encouraging the proliferation of electric vehicles. It provides drivers with convenient access to state-of-the-art charging infrastructure and reduces range anxiety, a common concern associated with EV ownership. The investment by VitaeMobility to create a fast charging network complements its current business offering, such as a smart car leasing concept, and further demonstrates the company's commitment towards the ongoing development and support of EV transportation and infrastructure grounded in a sustainable economic model. The collaboration between ABB and VitaeMobility will enable the company to continue its strong growth curve in the Belgium market.
